Nalika has always been attracted to Indian dance, music, and culture especially the art forms from Rajasthan. Her first dance training was classical ballet and modern ballet at her age 8-12. After becoming an adult, she started Yoga training in 2003 and visited Rishikesh (India) in 2006. At the same time she met world renown bellydancer Mishaal and started to learn from her (2007-2011). Mishaal invited Queen Harish (2008) to Tokyo. Then she decided to visit to Queen Harish and went to Jaisalmer (Rajasthan) in 2009. From then onwards, she visited Rajasthan every year to train with local dancers in multiple Rajasthani styles. She is currently also learning Indian classical dance. She organizes regular dance tours to Rajasthan for her students.
